Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.” ~ Rumi

The Lotus symbol in various religions and cultures represents enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth.

Many years ago I visited a graveyard in Dorset where an apple tree was growing out of a grave. This drawing was inspired by this experience.
